New York City Business Travel Association


The New York City Business Travel Association (NYCBTA), an official chapter of the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), provides an important forum for the exchange of information, education and ideas among its members, who include representatives from local corporations and leading travel industry suppliers. Our emphasis is to work together to better understand new and emerging travel management practices.

NYCBTA is committed to enhancing the travel profession by sponsoring educational and informational programs for its members, and by providing top-rated speakers to address travel-related issues, concerns and current "hot topic" items.

Our chapter is an excellent venue for the sharing of travel-related information and professional expertise, and is an organization focused on perfecting the science of business travel management.

Letter from the President - 5/14/2015

I cannot believe that it is already May.  I am pleased to say that we have had some amazing events thus far and all of them sold-out.  Some of our events this year even had folks on waitlists.  Our topics and networking sessions are being received positively.  We are listening to our members and doing everything possible to bring value and education to our organization's guests and members.

Our Membership Drive continues with Adeline Colon and her team of volunteers who are working diligently to grow our organization and shine the light on the benefits we offer.  If you are not a member or your membership is about to expire, I highly encourage you to join or renew.  We have lots more in store for this year and you do not want to miss out.

Thanks to Bill Yetzer and his team of volunteers for moving our Sponsorship Drive forward.  Please be sure to visit our sponsors and if you have any opportunities to work with them, please do so - SPONSORS.  

We are thankful to these supporters for their commitment.  They see the value of what we do, the value to invest in our members and we are grateful for the partnership.              

The Meeting & Events team are busy planning sessions for the rest of the year.  Just to give you a little foreshadowing, this month we will talk about Shared Economy (UBER, AirBNB, etc.) and our following session on 6/25 will focus on Hotel RFPs.  Save the date for November 12th , our Education Day/Silent Auction ; a full day of educational sessions followed by a networking Silent Auction.

Lastly, I encourage you all to become more involved.  This is your chapter and you will reap only what you sow.  We welcome volunteers to help out on various committees.  If you are interested in becomeing a volunteer, please reach out to any of our board members.  We look forward to seeing you our upcoming events.  Remember, sign up early so that you do not miss out.
